The Arizona Democratic Representative was shot in the head and almost killed back in 2012. Along with her husband, Mark Kelly, Gabby Giffords became an advocate for sensible gun laws and in her endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Giffords said in a statement that Clinton is the only candidate who “has the determination and toughness to stand up to the corporate gun lobby — and the record to prove it.”
The statement read;
As a United States Senator, Hillary voted for laws that keep guns out of the wrong hands and make our communities safer places to live. She voted against protecting gun manufacturers at all costs and insisted on putting the safety of our communities over manufacturers’ bottom lines. And we believe that as president she will continue working to respect the rights of law-abiding gun owners like us while working to achieve practical solutions like a reliable background check system that prevents dangerous people from getting guns, closing loopholes to protect women and families by keeping guns out of the hands of abusers and stalkers, and cracking down on the illegal gun trade.
